I made this ski pack and a pair of neoshell ski pants for my girlfriend for Christmas. Ive made a handful of packs in the past but this is my first panel loader and far and away my most complicated pack build. It's not particularly light, although lighter than most similarly equipped commercially available packs I think. Main materials are 1000d Cordura, with big burly #10 zips. It has an ice axe attachment point and side ski straps for A frame carry. It has a fleece lined top goggle pocket with a small ditty pocket sewn on the exterior of the goggle compartment inside the main pack body. Inside there's a removable sit pad and a shovel and probe pocket. The random female buckle over the right shoulder is for the attachment of a quick release loop for diagonal ski carry (with the addition of another removable strap that attaches on the lower left)
We're going to be at Jay in Vermont for New Years, then two weeks in Colorado and Utah after so she should be able to give it a good workout pretty soon. Right now it's all wrapped up just waiting to be opened.<img src="/backpackinglight/user_uploads/1387520559_94950.jpg" alt="d" width="480" height="640">Dec 20, 2013 at 5:11 am #2056198Chad LorenzBPL Member
